Investigative Paper - Accelerate Medical Devices Prototyping and Go-To-Market in a Crisis

Updated: May 28

By Dr. Hicham Farid

CAE/FEA Engineer at Aventec



During the COVID-19 pandemic, the need for certain medical equipment such as ventilators, masks, and gloves have outpaced the supply chain capabilities due to the overwhelming demand. Creative solutions have emerged to help the health workers during this fight; however, the challenge is to provide up-to standard components and equipment while accelerating the production volume without compromising quality. Additive Manufacturing (AM) is the technology that everyone is turning to because of its fast-paced production and ability to help manufacturing complex designs with high prototyping and production volumes. Still with this kind of technology, engineers and scientists need to understand how their products behave during and right after the additive manufacturing process is completed, thus the need to perform simulations come into play.


In this post, Dr. Hicham Farid, our resident FEA Specialist performed an Additive Manufacturing process simulation of a ventilator splitter design. The simulation helps to analyze design solutions before production in order to reduce the cost of prototyping, and get reliable devices to patients and hospitals in record time.
